Currently recruiting for an experienced Mechanical Superintendent on a permanent staff basis for an international Drilling Contractor based in Aberdeen. Although predominantly an onshore-based support role, there will be the requirement to work offshore, on occasion. Most of the offshore travel will be within the UK and Norway, but on occasion, it could be as far as Australia. Therefore, applicants must be prepared to work offshore. All applicants must also be fully eligible to work in the UK. Previous experience of working in a similar Mechanical Superintendent type role, directly with a Drilling Contractor, is essential. A University Degree qualification is essential (a Mechanical Engineering Degree would be preferred), as is previous experience of working with an OEM oilfield equipment provider, with a particular focus on on-site technical service and inspection. This role would suit a candidate who possesses a strong hands-on offshore mechanical background (i.e. has previously worked as a Rig Mechanic, or similar) and has moved into a Mechanical Superintendent / onshore support type role. The post holder will also need to have experience of providing onshore support to multiple rigs. Reporting to the Field Support Manager, the Mechanical Superintendent will be accountable for ensuring mechanical and structural systems onboard the company’s rigs are fit-for-purpose and are properly maintained.
